Smithfield Foods as a Biopharmaceutical Company?


Apr 19, 2017


Smithfield Foods, a subsidiary of the WH Group, has established a Bioscience Unit to investigate and possibly apply xenotransplantation from hogs to humans.

Reuters cites Courtney Stanton, Vice President of the new Bioscience Unit, as stating that the company has concentrated on pork products as food but pig organs have potential for transplantation.
